It comes, as Ben is said, in turn leaves two films as Batman – and Jon Hamm announced his interest during an interview with Deep House Graham Bensinger this week.

The former Mad Men star reveals that he plays the role of Bruce Wayne, depending on the script or story.

"I'm a big comic fan, always been," he said. "I've read comic books since I was nine or younger, and I know a lot about many, and I like the genre, and I like it when it's done well."

However, this is not a very crazy idea when he admitted that he still has not talked to anyone in any corner office at Warner Bros..

He added, "I would probably fit the suit, I would have to train a lot, which I do not love, but I'm sure there is an interesting version of it, and if they want to give me a peck on the back and ask me why Not? "
